There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: . He that feareth is not made perfect in love (1 John 4:19). Please, remember this scripture when any so-called prophet comes to you with a “prophecy of death” or “prophecy of misfortune”. IF God reveals a bad thing to a “prophet” God will NEVER send a spirit of fear to you! (2 Timothy 1:7). The spirit of God is ALWAYS love, PERIOD! Even when He chastises you, it’s done IN LOVE (Hebrews 12:6). TRUE PROPHECY FROM THE GOD OF ISSAC, JACOB and ABRAHAM, will NEVER boast of itself! A real prophet will never boast of his/her ability to prophecy, because it’s not his own ability, it’s by the spirit of God who is the spirit of love! (1 Corinthians 13:4). Unspiritual people can’t see that most of these acclaimed prophets are using an evil means to “see” spiritually and use the title “prophet” to hide their evil! Yes, what they “see” MAY be accurate- but THAT DOESNT MEAN THEY WERE SENT BY GOD! Even (male and female) can see! Deut 18:9-12- Lev 19:31- 1 Jn 4:1- Isaiah 47:13-15- Dan 2:27-28- Acts 16-16 A fake prophet can only “see” but so far True prophets call people back to genuine repentance, and living a life of holiness! (Jerimiah 23:22).
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out in the world. (1John 4:1 KJV)
